A UFO and other strange occurrences were reported in Metairie earlier today.

MUFON (The Mutual UFO Network) received a report of a UFO and related unusual activity in Metairie. While MUFON's report says the report was made on the same day of the sighting, the eyewitness account refers to the events happening on a Friday night. The witness and the rest of their party witnessed a flying object as well as time loss, frequently reported along with UFO sightings. Below is an excerpt from the full witness account, which you can read here.

after that we noticed it started coming toward us and it made a sharp right angle to do so it was hovering before that that's what we thought it was a helicopter. as it got closer and closer we thought it was weird that it wasn't making a sound and notice it was pulsating red and white lights and it was dish probably 2 miles away. after that we noticed it started coming toward us and it made a sharp right angle to do so it was hovering before that that's why we thought it was a helicopter. as it got closer and closer we thought it was weird that it wasn't making a sound and notice it was pulsating red and white lights and it was disk shaped. as soon as it was about 50 feet away we ran for the car and it chased us though pretty high up in the air. after we got out the car we could see it go about two blocks away and it look like it landed but that doesn't make sense because there's houses all there and it just disappeared behind the trees.

If you've encountered a UFO or other UAP (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena), you can file a report with MUFON. You will remain anonymous if you wish.
